Great classic throwback steak restaurant, awesome classic setting with great service and fine steaks!
The bar is a nice spot to catch up too for a pre and post dinner drink.

Absolutely recommend and think it has appeal for all sorts.

Classy establishment with solid service. Entrees were an interesting selection of "old school favourites" that were all done perfectly. Nice to be able to sample a good terrine or pate rather than some new eclectic offering that may, or may not, hit the mark. Great wine list too (but be prepared to pay for the privilege...). The "Steak for Four" was magnificent with a hearty serve for even the most hungry diners. All in all a great addition to the Brisbane dining scene and worth a visit for any special occasion.

A beautifully appointed , decorated and furnished restaurant in a period Brisbane building. Probably the best steak meal we have ever had in a restaurant. In addition the General Manager Jason and our waiter Max could not have done more to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Our compliments to the Chef and everyone involved. Only open 15 weeks but has a bright future on the Brisbane eating out scene. We would strongly recommend tis venue to all.

My partner and I had the 'Prime Australian Grain-Fed Beef, dry-aged and cut in house' for two and German Fried Potatoes as our side: the T-Bone steak was cooked to perfection - tender, delicious, and beautiful marble; and the German Fried Potatoes were tasty too. The appetizer came with a strange steak sauce which was served cold and we weren't massive fans of the cold sauce against the warm meat.

The atmosphere was 'white table cloth' and it seemed like there was not a dress code: some wore casual, some in smart-casual, and others in formal attire. I found the mixed attire ruined the 'atmos.' Overall lovely experience and would highly recommend it.

We loved our dinner at Walter's. Every part of the expereince was wonderful - from arriving earlier for a delicious cocktail in the bar to the AMAZING signature T-Bone steak (the best I have ever eaten). Our waiters were all brilliant and we really enjoyed the atmosphere in general. Our best meal in Brisbane- ever.

Based on other reviews we tried Walter's and had high hopes. Service was prompt and polite. The bread was fine and butter appreciated however the special steak sauce was room temperature. We had duck parfait and dry aged beef tartare for entrees, and the lamb and 30 day dry aged NY strip for mains. The parfait was good as many other reviews had indicated, the tartare a tad over seasoned with the vinegarette style dressing, but otherwise good. The lamb was fine but had a sauce that considerably overpowered the flavour of the meat, and simply too much of it. The steak was also fine, 1/2 shade over the requested med-rare, but otherwise good. So overall good service, high quality ingredients, nice ambience and no real complaints - but neither were we blown away. So a question of value that only the individual can answer. Time will tell whether others view Walter's in a similar light.

Excellent bar selection. Steak good, did request rare and it was more medium, not great for a restaurant specialising in steak. Pork chop was ok, nothing special. Chips were very nice. Dining room is large and can be a little noisy. Service was very cheerful and attentive. Over not bad.

Exceptional as always, thank you. We dine here once a week (sometimes more) without fail. On Friday evening, we were with friends from Dubai who were most impressed. Well done team Walters! A special nod must go to Adam and the kitchen team, and our waiters David, Czahn and the rest of the front of house team. See you soon.

In all not bad, felt rushed with waiters, 3 course meal within 1hour on a weekend was a little to quick for us. During the week at lunch times definitely great, but not on weekends.

Staff could explain a little more about specials if they have them, also the lighting is way too dark to read the menu, plus where they sat us was cold. When we advised the staff, sorry nothing we can do. Poor in my books. We won’t be back.

Absolutely fabulous meal, excellent service at table and bar (where else in Brisbane are you offered a try of 2 champagnes because you haven't tried them before???) The steak was to die for (finished cooking at the table) and beautifully plated by our expert waiter. Just the right amount for the main course and dessert. So pleased we tried Walters and will definitely be back on a regular basis. PS Botanical gardens across the road are just perfect for walking off your meal!

The food was absolutely delicious. The place is quite noisy so it is hard to have a conversation over a table for two. We were seated at a table that usually serves for 4 I think which made a difference. It was very busy so sometimes it was hard to get our waiters attention. I thought it would be a fine dinning experience, but it isn't once you walk in through the doors-not a bad thing but just not what was expected.

We first visited Walter's a couple of weeks ago & the meal was outstanding! With guests from interstate for the weekend, we thought we would give it another go & what a great decision! We had the house specialty beef which was the best without doubt beef I have ever eaten, german potatoes, oysters, bugs, prawn cocktail, Pierogi - a recommendation Czahn (our outstanding server for the evening) - truly amazing, a selection of deserts & some great cocktails. The wine selection was well priced & extensive much to our delight. 10/10 & without doubt the best meal & experience I have had dining out in Brisbane in the last 25 years. Could not recommend or rate Walter's any more highly!!!!! Can't wait to return.
